Looking for help to bridge the gap between 3D ideas and finished goods? Use a technical translator to insure vendors understand what you want and can respond with the most cost effective way to get you to your end goal.
Quotes, tooling, materials, pilot runs and capability studies…then Production! You’ve created your ideal in a 3D model and the prototype works…now it’s time to scale it up.
Do you speak manufacturing?
Do you find it easy to broker projects between Engineering, Purchasing, your vendors?
What about when there are issues? Who do you turn to for help?
Need a fresh pair of eyes before you release that design for tooling? A second opinion? Even the best engineer can miss issues in the products they develop. There are no guarantees, but take all precautions and every opportunity to catch problems BEFORE they get hard tooled into your product.
What about design review AFTER launch?
After a successful production release, your team may take a well earned break from the project. But after some time and production under your belt….do you go back and review to look for ways to make things better, less costly….to improve quality? Every project with a deadline forces compromises….Take another look, running improvements can be like pulling twenty dollar bills out of the box before you ship the product.
Need a vendor? We don’t make parts, but we work daily with people who do! Let’s take your documentation (even if we did not create it) and get you good quotes from a number of viable manufacturers. Compare and pick the one with the best fit.
We are happy to work with the vendors you already have or help you find new ones.
Sometimes there is a ‘hitch’ in your program. When a disagreement is small…that’s the time to try to work it out. Don’t wait until the parties are angry and you need attorneys and judges to sort through the mess. An independent third party can sometimes help diffuse the situation and find a workable solution.
If you need a technical person who understands the world of product development and can help sort out the situation (with NO offer of legal advice)…start here. Common issues between engineering and production or purchasing and engineering are often easy to resolve, if you jump on them quickly.
